I am thinking about getting my first firearm (probably a Glock 17/19) for home protection. Probably an old question, but could you give me some advice on safe storage? My baby girl is just starting to crawl around and is already curious like a monkey.

The first question would be do you live in Ca?

I have a quick access safe that is great to have with kids.  You can get to it quickly, but the kids can't.  You can also tell if someone else tries to open it.

I've got a 1.(something) cubic foot safe with an electronic keypad lock. You can find them at Home Depot or Walmart for $250 or so. It'll hold a couple handguns and important docs. It opens quick but, it's not going to be as easy access as what Sam Pai is talking about because it probably will not be located beside the bed.

If you were in Ca you would have to buy one that is state approved.

Thanks for your answers! A quick access safe sounds interesting. The ones I could find after some googling were: - Gunlocker - BioVault - Mossberg (not in stock...?) - VersaVault Do you have any experience with these systems? How difficult is it to defeat them compared to a Depot type safe as described above? If my kid is like me, she will probably see it as a challenge to try to enter it...

Keeping it always locked is a necessity, of course, but the next step is instruction. I started teaching my son about firearms when he was three and he never gave us any problems about handling them. He also said that his familiarity with weapons had a great deal to do with him firing expert with both rifle and pistol in the Marines and later in the Army. Grandpab
